plan for the middle-class. it's not just about protecting romney's rich friends. farce is the president is concerned, if its wash, that is fine. he doesn't need to score an knockout blow. if it's a tie he comes out ahead. i think he'll go after romney and make that same pointed that romney's plans is protecting the rich. and also, this is key since the democratic convention, they seem to have gotten people to feel more optimistic about the economy. polls indicate that people are not as pessimistic about the economy he has to keep up that belief. >> eric: that sounds like it's fascinating interview. we can't wait until wednesday night. >> me, too. this is one of those moments, no scripts, you want to see what happens. >> eric: get the popcorn, get the pillows. you can get a preview of the debate with congressman paul ryan, that is later today. fox news sunday at 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. eastern time right here. >> jamie: and while we wait for that. there is a possible breakthrough we want you know about in the fight of breast cancer. what scientists found that could lead to more effective
and dependency by more and more people versus romney's plan for opportunity and growth. they clearly decided it has to be contrasting visions why obama is wrong and they claim romney is right. i think you'll see a lot of that on wednesday night. >> eric: they estimate 5 million americans will be watching. how important is it on wednesday? could it be the turning point in this race on wednesday night? >> i don't think people are saying, romney has to land a knockout blow, i don't think it has to happen. the polls seem to indicate and from top officials feel that obama is leading at this point is that the end of the night on wednesday night a lot of voters, millions of voters have to say, gee, i thought i was for obama but i'm not so sure. think don't have to put a yard sign for mitt romney on their front lawn. they need to sort of say, i thought i knew i was for but i'm not sure. if that happened and that would be enough for mitt romney. >> eric: what should we look for? should we watch for iconic line, are you better off than four years ago? >> i think from romney's point of view, he has to
, at least obama is talking about raising taxes and revenue and i don't think we know what romney's plan is, he won't share any details with us. i'll tell you what though, you say everything is about cutting spending. you know, gary, europe has been cutting spending like crazy and look where europe's headed. their talk, a lot of evidence that they're in recession now, because they've been way overaggressive about austerity and i don't think that would be good for the u.s. >> there's a lot of differences between us and europe, toby, what do you think this plan, this specific economic patriotism plan will do to debt and to the economy here in the u.s.? >> well, of course, debt is going to go up. remember, this is a code word. patriotism is a code word for we'll borrow another, and borrow another, if you take the spending wave structure and take it out ten years, we get to that point like greece, like spain, where it's a point of no return. there is a point at which, when interest rates go up and of course, they will, and as interest rates go up, all of a sudden, 20% and then 30%, our entire b
the same. that's what governor romney's plan. i love that ad. $4 trillion reduction in the debt, really, mr. president? really. he hasn't come forward with a plan. it's great ad. it sounds really nice and looks nice. but there's nothing substantive there. >> the comeback from president obama at that point, where are the details, that same question could be put to governor romney, you said hard truths in the convention, governor romney hasn't laid out which deductions will go away for the wealthy. >> the president of the united states has an obligation to be the one who's the most specific. >> so the challenger doesn't have to. >> i didn't say that. that ad does nothing to add to the debate and discussion except to not tell the truth. he starts off by not telling the truth. the president says governor romney wants more tax cuts for the rich. which is not true. governor romney said it over and over again, the rich will not pay less. >> the tax rates will come down. the same amount of money coming out of your pocket and my pocket, you're no particular time not worried. we're competing in a glo
. and so we wanted to find out what the romney/ryan plan is when they face off against obama and biden. we caught up with running mate paul ryan saturday in new hampshire. before we sat down for an exclusive interview, we spoke briefly as he was about to it take the stage for a campaign town hall. >> what do you think just before you go out on stage each time? >> president obama is taking us in the wrong direction. mitt romney and i are offering them a different direction and i'm excited at the opportunity to give people the chance to pick that choice. that is what gets me excited about this. >> thank you so much for coming out, everybody. >> chris: congressman, welcome back to "fox news sunday." >> great to be back with you, chris. welcome to new hampshire. >> chris: thank you. what does governor romney need to do wednesday night in the first debate? >> he needs to give the american people the choice that we are offering. that is what we are doing. we owe the country a cheer choice of a different future. we can either have a dynamic growing economy that produces opportunity or we can have
steve, what do you think of this romney tax plan? >> it increases take-home pay, middle class family, $2,000 extra in their take-home pay, and more importantly it reduces the price of doing work, being productive and taking risks. lowering that price, lowering tax rates. that's the way to get the economy going. worked for kennedy, for reagan, worked in the early part of the last decade. it will work again. >> we have to do something. since the recovery began, by the way, june 2009, household incomes are down 5.7%. that's since the recovery. when you're in a recovery, incomes are supposed to go up. >> yeah. what's disstressing and concerning is, at this point i don't know what governor romney has in mind. he's been saying all along he'll reduce taxes and shows up in ohio -- >> reducing tax rates. >> he shows up and says don't expect a huge tax cut, because what he's doing is lowering deductions and exemptions. great. i wonder if somebody will get around to telling me what those deductions and exemptions are that he's going to lower. he's been running for president for seemingly
paying the same. that's what governor romney's plan is. so, what i would say, i love that ad. the president gets to say, a million new manufacturing jobs? how? $4 trillion reduction in the debt, really, mr. president? really. how? he hasn't endorsed his own plan. he hasn't come forward with a plan. it's a great ad. i have no doubt about that. it sounds really nice and looks nice. but there's nothing substantive there. >> i can imagine the comeback from president obama at that point, where are the details, that same question could be put to governor romney, you said hard truths in the convention, but governor romney hasn't laid out which deductions will go away for the wealthy. >> listen, the president of the united states has an obligation after four years of being president, to be the one who's the most specific. >> so the challenger doesn't have to? >> i didn't say that. he has the bigger obligation. that ad does nothing to add to the debate and discussion, except to not tell the truth. he starts off by not telling the truth. which is, the president says governor romney wan
romney and president obama, together you would have a patriotic plan where you're removing some of the benefits of the lower people the last 10, 15 years and then, we would have higher revenues cross the board and that would lower the deficit the most, and the other things in this that are not particularly patriotic. a lot of the obama proposals think there's a small group that can fix the problems. the thing with the car thing, we all have to pay a higher gas tax and help the deficit, and have the cars making 80 miles per hour and we're the ones driving far. >> you say you want to wave the flag for patriotism, you say there's something to it? >> yeah, sure, first of all, you've got to give the guy a nod. here is a guy that the right wing loons have been calling manchurian candidate from kenya the last four years and kind of amusing to watch him waving old glory in their faces, but i will share some, something-- >> yeah, how amusing is it to see our debt go higher? >> oh, well, i'm not sure that either of these candidates has taken anything terribly serious about the debt. i mea
's put on the table. put your plan on the table and pass that budget through congress, and mitt romney offered a plan, president obama hasn't done any of that. he disavowed bowles simpson and offered all the it i haves -- alternative plans. the even bowles simpson, it didn't address the primary driver of our debt. health care programs. starting going bankrupt. i don't want a pass a bill to fix the fiscal crisis when i know it doesn't fix the fiscal crisis. >> neil: he's saying it didn't go far enough. charles payne, ben stein, dagen mcdowell and adam lashinsky and charlie gasperino. >> i think it was a good place to start, to ryan's point, it was with respect to social security or medical spending, you know, and the ideal spending cap. if we adhere to spending caps we wouldn't be in this position in the first place, so i take his point although i think it would have been a good starting point for everyone to say, okay, let's start with this and then go from there. ben stein? >> we've gotten ourselves into a such a deep hole and everyone wants to avoid tax, tax, tax, we can't. yes, they
of detail and information to make a judgment on governor romney and what his plan is for the future. but let's look at what the president is saying as well. you're right, the president has had four years to lay this out and now a campaign. and the president just trying to run out the clock. he desperately wants to run out the clock with platitudes which sound nice and i give him that. the president is very good at that. but in the end, i think that both sides have to look at this campaign and say, what are we going to lay out over the next 36 days and that's i think what's really important. and i think governor romney will lay out some very important points over the next 36 days. that are going it make people believe once and for all that america can be great again. not just staggering along here economically as we've been doing. >> earlier this year, before he was the official nominee, you criticized mitt romney, you talked about his shortkomgtcome failure to connect with people as a candidate. that criticism has not gone away. and then had you his secretly recorded speech at a fundraiser w

romney could present a serious economic plan with numbers that add up and then he would face a revolt within his own party. so his solution has been to be utterly vague about how to deal with the actually deficit. when pressed for details, he said, the devil's in the details. he's right. were he to get specific he would be committing ideological blasphemy. instead he talks about freedom and capitalism. the same pattern emerges on immigration. he says he wanted to solve the immigration issue permanently but he can't actually propose anything practical because that would talk about legalizing in some form the 12 million illegal immigrants in this country and that would trigger internal revolt in the republican party. so as a deficit, romney has a plan but it's a secret. the republican party has imposed a new kind of political correctness on their leaders. they cannot speak certain words, taxes, speculate about certain ideas, a path to citizenship, because these are forbidden. romney has tried to run a campaign while not running afoul of his party's strictures. as for himself he's twiste
